Katerina our guide was very friendly and helpful. We went to places that you would not know were there if you weren’t local. The food was delicious and there was so much of it. I would definitely say don’t have breakfast before you go. Thank you Kateriba was a brilliant tour.

Started with an informative and lovely tour of Corfu town, followed by a sumptuous meal that included the best Greek salad we had while in Corfu (and we made it!). Plus, some darling kittens gamboling around the villa. What could be better?

Perfect day to Paxos/Antipaxos and caves under the september's sun, sea was hot, very good explains by the speaker, and great vibe on the way back with the DJ on the boat !

A wonderful experience largely due to the knowledgeable, funny and warm host. A highlight of our stay.
